John Parkins played for Surrey Seniors against Hertfordshire Over 50s and 60s last Tuesday, at Horsley and Send Cricket Club. During the Surrey innings, John maintaned his usual opening position, scoring 45 off 52 balls. Making sure he avoided a jug, John told the LDCC web site reporter: “I thoroughly enjoyed the game at the beautiful ground of Horsley and Send. Even though I was given out LBW, which the bowler thought was an optimistic shout, (batsman are never out are they – ed), it was a lovely day and am looking forward to the next match. ” John’s heroics however, were not quite enough, as Surrey Seniors lost the game.

West End Esher were the visitors to Long Ditton on Saturday, with LDCC taking the win just as the light worsened, with thunder and lightning rumbling around the ground, although not as much rain fell as Dave would have liked!  On Sunday, Kensington and Chelsea were the visitors against the First XI, on yet another warm, sunny day. Local resident Morne Lombard made his debut for the club, taking two wickets and a catch to help LDCC win by 67 runs. A youthful Sunday Second XI travelled to take on a strong Teddington side, who beat the Second XI by 7 wickets.
